THROW BACK THURSDAY? #TBT?

Toronto Blue Jays GM pulled off the unthinkable trade this morning for David Price, among the top 2-4 starting pitchers in the game. The only problem is he’ll be a free agent at the end of the season in September or October if they make it to the playoffs? NOBODY saw that coming!

Yes the Blue Jays won with their “new” short stop! 8 runs for the Blue Jays new short stop, Troy Tulowitzki, who spent almost 10 years in Colorado, finished the game with a 2 run home run & 2 doubles for a total of 4 RBIs & 2 runs scored. Do I expect this for every game? Not at all. His defense is also superior to Jose Reyes. He drove in 4 runs & scored 2 or 3 including his home run? Welcome to the Blue Jays, I hope the GM has another “ninja like trade” in the works for a pitcher. Nobody saw this trade coming so it’s been called “ninja”/”league of shadows” trade, despite this being talked about in the off season & during the month of May again. I think Tulowitzki just shut up all of the GM haters. Jose Bautista was right though when he spoke to the media saying “It’s a good baseball move, but not one we really needed”. They were all thinking a trade would mean a big name pitcher would be coming to Toronto. The trade deadline is tomorrow. I won’t be close to even opening this door. Friday you’re on your own. I’ll be on the couch watching the activity in MLB.

All of this is great but ay 51W-51L it seems too late with 60 games left in the season? 2 or 3 guys have a lot of pressure on them to carry the Jays to the playoffs, especially with 13 games against the New York Yankees

Now that so many sporting events have adopted the challenge flag, it needs to be changed somewhat. Make the on field officials responsible for their mistakes. Don’t let them hide behind “Oh, the guy in whatever city called it after the review”. No. Have the head official at the game & the challenging coach watch the video together. If the coach isn’t satisfied with the result & begins to argue, toss him from the game. Make the officials at the game take responsibility for the call. Be it CFL, NFL, MLB, NHL or the NBA. I only watch Blue Jays baseball & as much CFL as possible, & a very minimal amount of NHL. I don’t know if the NBA has a challenge rule?

WAY BACK WEDNESDAY? #WBW?

The Toronto Blue Jays made a BIG trade Monday evening/Tuesday morning. All-Star short stop & 3 pitching prospects to Colorado for arguably the best short stop in baseball & a 42 year old reliever. Tonight we’ll see the new short stop in action!

I heard “Kid A” by Radiohead once, left, bought all the way up to & including “In Rainbows”, then left them completely.

Paramore’s debut album “All We Know is Falling” was released 10 years ago on July 26th.

I’ve been listening to the new “Lamb of God” quite a bit, not much different from previous albums, really good for “Lamb of God”fans. I can’t see new fans saying “Oh, this is great!!!! Where did this band come from????”. The only noticeable difference for me was the clean singing mixed with the death vocals on the song “Overlord”. I have never heard “Lamb of God” do that, but they do it well. This album does remind me of their 3 albums I really enjoyed “As The Palaces Burn”, “Ashes of the Wake”, & “Sacrament”.

I continue wanting to listen to the first 3 Foo Fighters albums & the recently released debut album from “Highly Suspect”

OFFENSIVE MUSIC

Kim threw out her back yesterday? She took some Tylenol when she came home yesterday. She’s home today since she can’t really move. She’s in bed at the moment.

Yes, I grabbed the new “Lamb of God” album last night to listen to while going to sleep. I fell asleep too fast only heard half of the album. I’ll let you know that the firs 5 songs are REALLY good for fans of “As the Palaces Burn”, “Ashes of the Wake”, & “Sacrament”, as for the rest of the album I’ll tell you more next week.

The music I listen to can be very offensive to others, & I get that. That’s why I don’t force my music to be played here on the stereo when Kim is home unless it’s something we both like or if it’s “….my birthday…..”

Rap music is my Kryptonite If it’s not “Beastie Boys” I’m out! Yes I like Bicardi rum!

For me most country music & rap music aren’t for me, slightly offensive. I don’t go to football games for the music. I say just play country music & 75% of the crowd will love it. Yes, more country music, I can tolerate it, it won’t make my ears bleed……………..much.

I forgot, I fell on Thursday doing my yoga. Not the first time & likely not the last.

Can we talk about wussy baseball players for a second? Good, thank you! There was a day game in Oakland yesterday. Blue Jays SS (Short Stop) had a ball thrown from the outfield. It bounced twice. Once on the ground, & once on the base runners back into Jose Reyes’ teeth, he left the game. Why?How many times have I blocked a ground ball with my chest, have a ball hit my head while at bat with a batting helmet on, etc. Just suck it up & maybe EARN the multi million dollar pay check to play a game? I’ve taken a baseball to the mouth before, no blood, stay in the game. I’ve left a game twice with an injury. Stretched tendons in my knee after colliding with a 1B player, & running flat out into foul ground to catch a pop up then two steps later running into a chain link fence, bending the top about a foot while getting a bruise, winded, & possibly some cracked ribs? If you’re being paid millions of dollars to play a game, suck it up & get on the playing surface Especially baseball, a baseball won’t hurt you unless you let it! Play the ball, don’t let the ball play you. I’m pretty sure one of my coaches said that.

I don’t vote, so I can’t complain, until you’re growing your food in your garden the way you want, what gives you the right to complain? It’s hard to argue with 1000s of scientific studies that result in favour of using GMOs. I guess the scientists keep getting it wrong?

TEACH ME PLEASE?

I really would like this to be conversation between myself & the readers. I’m telling you my story of the music I like, now you tell me what you’re into? I’m not about to judge anyone on their listening choices, that would be weird coming from a music fan. Please, let’s make this interactive, in a good way? If I haven’t checked it out or mentioned it on here, teach me please?

I’m going to watch “Blue Jays in 0:30 minutes”. I MUCH prefer watching a 3 hour pitching dual where the score is 1 or 2-0. For me it has to be really close & low scoring or a total blow-out for one team! They lost……………………..again.

Not much going on in the music side of things today. Our 12.5lbs dog is driving me crazy today. It’s been cloudy all day, it’s raining & he heard thunder earlier. In other words he’s been panting & shaking like a leaf for most of the day. Kim deals with him throughout the night, then I deal with him all day. He’s been this way for quite a few weeks now? I think he’s getting old fast. He mostly lays at the door, scratching it & whining.

We had a noise complaint about him early on last year when we both went out one day & forgot to leave the TV on for Brewster. Since then we haven’t left him alone. We take him to my parents house, Mitch & Rachel’s place, or Sherry & James’ house. We pretty much have to get a sitter for our dog? He seems to be getting worse with age, he wasn’t like this 3 weeks ago? He’s on anxiety pills now, they aren’t helping & he’s been on them long enough to have them in his system.

Songs I like. “Megadeth”

CHEAP MOVIE TUESDAY

We were out last night to see the movie “Trainwreck” written & starring Amy Schumer & leading male actor Bill Hader. It was pretty good! Still buy blu-rays, & this movie I’ll purchase whenever it is released on blu-ray. R rated comedy!

Micheal Jackson co-wrote “Do The Bartman” that I had the cassette of in grade 6.

Songs I like. “Me first & the gimme gimmes” Punk covers of well known songs from any genres! 8 albums, I think I have 6 on CD. Chris Shifflet of Foo Fighters is or was the lead guitar player. Funny punk not hard core punk.

Tuesday

I woke up today & thought “OOOOO, it’s Friday!!! NOPE, it’s Tuesday!” I did that weeks ago as well. Very disappointing.

Here it is 8:26 am & 3 people in the USA have viewed my blog 10 times each for a total of 30 views already. It doesn’t tell me who they are, just the country & how many people have viewed the site however many times. Thanks, hold your horses, I don’t post this until the end of the day around 5:00pm.

I don’t really know what Facebook means, but it says this blog had 2800 readers yesterday? It must mean I’ve had 2800 people in total from 2012-now! Thanks!

316 friends on Facebook for me, & I rarely get a PM, usually only if I initiate the conversation same with email. I don’t have the time to talk to each individual despite my effort & me being at home all day. I’m not leaving Facebook but maybe don’t speak publically about a trip or vacation until after the event happens & you are back home? Just a thought? Use the internet however you like. For me it’s more for tagging others or joking around, but that’s just my view. If you’re cool with email, know me personally, & have something to say to me, an email won’t kill you REALLY? I use email & survived stage 4 brain cancer??!!! Did I just blow your mind? Hahahahaha!

EVERYBODY has email, not all people have Facebook or twitter? I’m not on twitter, so I use email to stay in contact with people. I’m basically on Facebook for the information & the 6 or 7 people who have issues with their email. One day I’ll pop up & say “I’m canceling my facebook account”. You could argue the pros & cons of each.

Monday’s Rock It Out Blog. I see a commercial for this game & multiple times I think “Cool a new Batman movie!!!!!!!!!”! Then I see that it’s a video game?

Director/Producer Judd Apatow on Jimmy Fallon. Director/Producer of “Superbad”, “Knocked Up”, “This is 40”, “40 Year Old Virgin”, “The Pineapple Express”, “Bridesmaids”, “Anchorman 2”, etc., now “Trainwreck”. R rated comedies.

RATED R!

I learned how to jive in high school gym class. It & The Polka were my two favourites. No, I was nowhere near this good, nobody ever left the ground. I could listen to “jive”/”swing”/”upbeat jazz” any day!

So I bought this last week, then yesterday I bought the following . Both from iTunes & I’m done for the month or I’ll go over my allowance, since I have 2 pre-orders left this month “Lamb of God” on Friday & “Finger Eleven” on the 31st . For me these are both catchy.

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/talking-dreams/id924487443

All while listening to my Friday pre-order.

I can be very cheap at times, but I’m also terrible with money for music! Before I buy something or pre order something on iTunes I always ask Kim. I know my limit, as it gets closer I ask!

Good grief, wrong condo suite people! Didn’t you lock your door when you left? Now I have to lock our door while I’m home. “OO, nice dog!” Did you have a dog when you left? Weird?

Sufjan/Cat Stevens Tour dates. Notice nothing in Canada, as per usual.

http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/07/sufjan-stevens-announces-new-us-tour-dates/

I think I know what I should do? Put a basket at the front door. When people come over I’ll have them put their phone, tablet or iPad in the basket when they’re under my roof visiting Kim & I. If it’s not a possible emergency, then why is there a phone here? I don’t have/want one. Do you need one at the moment when you’re here for a visit?

Number of iTunes accounts 800 million

Blog by iTunes Match user & other Apple products.

http://www.macworld.com/article/2036062/itunes-match-another-neglected-apple-service.html

I don’t have the patience to tell you how many iTunes Match users there are in the world or how many have unsubscribed from this service, but we’re taking our $25-$28/year & leaving, as many people have done. I don’t want big brother/Apple looking over my shoulder knowing what I listen to & judging me on that. The rich get richer & now the poor “……taketh away……”

Why bigger budget’s for movies don’t always make the film better.

Today’s Rock It Out Blog. Me either since the 4th album, “Kid A”. “Pablo Honey”, “The Bends”, & “OK Computer” especially the latter 2 are AWESOME to me. 2 must hear albums, like them or hate them. I think Radiohead lost a lot of fans with the release of “Kid A” but gained different fans also!

Little bit of Todd Bryanton’s work?

http://www.thetorchentertainmentguide.com/torch-spotlight-dr-monster/

Songs I like. “The Mayfield Four” Myles Kennedy’s previous band I saw in ’99 opening for “The Watchmen” & headliner “Big Wreck”. Now the singer for “Alter Bridge” & Slash’s solo albums.

LANGUAGE!!!

“The Fallout” album is not on iTunes, I had to download it as a torrent before I was sick or pay over $160 on Amazon for 1 CD?

Sorry, I love his voice!

On backing vocals.

Alter Bridge!

Brewster actually came to play with me while I was on the floor doing my exercise!!! That made me happy, he hasn’t done that in the last 2 weeks! He usually puts his squeak toy beside my head while doing my crunches today he left it right on my face. We played for a bit but he really just wanted me to rub his throat & belly.

One trilogy done many more to watch! I forgot how good the Christian Bale “Batman” trilogy is, & how good/dark Heath Ledger played The Joker. Thanks Cameron & Michelle Rorquist that was my weekend! Baseball, Football & Batman!   Cam & Michelle bought “The Dark Knight” DVD while I was in the hospital.  I had cancer, they asked me what they could do or what did I need?  My response “The Dark Knight” movie??? FANTASTIC weekend on the couch! Even Kim got into the Batman movies. Brewster even calmed down a bit, the only problem with every action movie is the sound. You blast the sound to hear the dialogue, then you have to turn it way down during the action sequences, so the people on the other end of town don’t hear the movie. Ah, well. What trilogy next? 6 Star Wars, Back to the Future, original Lord of the Rings (sans Hobbit), 4 American Pie movies, Austin Powers, etc. Better be careful, Kim may hurt me.

Let’s get something straight? I’m perfect but Kim’s a genius. Shh! Don’t tell her I said that OK….actually……………..DELETE, DELETE, DELETE, how do you work this fandangled contraption????????

No I do like Megadeth, they shared this on Facebook….

Offspring update from the studio.

Personally any song from the beginning of “Badmotorfinger” on it’s quite difficult to find a bad Soundgarden song there’s some that aren’t up to par, but still decent.

Big Wreck fan gets on stage during concert

BREAKING NEWS!!!! Kim is home today, she’s better than last night when she felt she might be catching the flu. Anyways she was going through her CD binder & found my Dave Grohl autographed ticket stub & news paper photo from 2000 in Saskatoon! Kim’s feeling much better today but not quite right yet. This song is the only one in the first 3 Foo Fighters’ albums that I tolerate & wait for the next song “Learn to Fly”.

Yes, the video of the older gentleman trying to put on his rain cape is funny. Notice in this life or death moment the phone catches all of the action. I don’t know what you’d do in this situation but video recording it would be the furthest from my mind?

Last night, after I posted my blog, I found out that you can still share your digital music if the person doesn’t use iTunes Match (home sharing without turning on a computer & unable to stream in a vehicle. No biggie, back to iTunes home sharing since Match is actually taking the songs I purchased from iTunes away from our TV on 2 recently purchased albums. They’re fine on any other device. Just means my iPod classic will be in the vehicle on long trips along with Kim’s phone.

Paramore shared it………

Songs I like. “Matthew Good/Matthew Good Band” I own about 7 Matthew Good Band CDs. I can’t find the first one that even he doesn’t have, someone stole it. Only 3 of them were really popular. This was Canada’s response to the “grunge” movement.
